Nutrients support skin health, inside and out.
In this interview with Ross Pelton (naturalpharmacist.net) we will discuss the nutrients that help support skin structure and function. There are a wide variety of skin issues and concerns. This is not a one size fits all discussion. If you have a particular problem with your skin your will need to focus on that concern in particular. That is beyond the scope of this discussion.
Ross will discuss the challenges that many people face with skin health. No matter the particular issue you face, you need to consider nourishing your body. It is critical to understand that for your skin to be healthy you must be well nourished. Ross will discuss some of the most important nutrients and lifestyle factors that will affect skin health.
The first step in restoring healthy skin is to examine your lifestyle and diet to identify those areas that can be improved. For example, smokers have bad skin. That is perhaps one of the most obvious examples, but it represents the lifestyle choices that are detrimental to good health. Each person has to examine their lifestyle to determine what needs attention. Seek to understand what your body needs for health and seek that. Don’t forget Nature’s Seven Doctors if you need inspiration on the basics.

Most people understand how probiotics can help support healthy digestion and the immune system. Did you know that beneficial microorganisms have other effects in the human body? They can even be found living on the surface of the skin. Unfortunately many of today’s skin care products disrupt dermal pH and probiotic balance. Now, with Dr. Ohhira’s beauty products you can experience a skin care program that supports pH balance and leaves skin naturally replenished.
Ross discusses some of the unique products for topical application created by Dr. Ohhira. This is where the benefits are built into the products. You only have to determine if these products work for you. One thing I have learned with certainty is that every person is unique and what works for one may not work for another. When I find skin care products that work for most people who try them, I gain more confidence to recommend them to others. This especially applies to the Beauty Bar Soap.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Kampuku Beauty Bar™ is a Nine-Time Winner of Better Nutrition Magazine’s ‘Best of Natural Beauty’ Award.

Formulated by the award-winning microbiologist, Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., Kampuku Beauty Bar contains healing plant extracts fermented with probiotics. Coconut oil, with known antimicrobial activity provides purifying power and health benefits. It contains no fragrances, stabilizers, deodorants, preservatives, chemicals or artificial colors.

This gives it a high degree of absorbency and helps deliver vital alpha-linolenic acids and linoleic acids deep into the skin to support natural dermal rejuvenation.

Balance is the Key to Healthy-Looking Skin
It’s always best to care for the skin with products that encourage the healthiest probiotic and pH balance. Skin science is rapidly transforming in response to probiotic discoveries, and Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Skin Lotions are at the forefront.
There is a relationship between dermal pH balance and probiotic balance: both Magoruku™ and Hadayubi™ include Dr. Ohhira’s botanical blend to provide pH-balancing effects along with vital saccharides, amino acids, and antioxidants. The probiotic extract in both products also produces pH-balancing and soothing organic acids—continuing the cycle of dermal health.
Supporting dermal probiotic balance can help:
- Maintain the appearance and integrity of collagen fibers
- Promote healthy skin cell rejuvenation
- Hydrate and replenish the skin
- Support the skin’s healthy barrier function
- Maintain radiant looking skin
Together, these effects help maintain skin vitality, which translates into a radiant-looking appearance!
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Magoroku™ Skin Lotion combines the rejuvenating powers of natural ingredients, ancient Japanese fermentation skills, and 21st century technology to create a superior clarifying, moisturizing and revitalizing experience. This exclusive formula, created by award-winning microbiologist Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira, melds probiotic and prebiotic nutrients along with wild plant and fruit extracts. The proprietary blend supports the balanced ecology necessary for healthy skin. Magoroku™ is formulated for daily whole body moisturizing and highly effective as a hand cream. While perfect for very dry skin, it is not heavy and is gentle enough for use on the face.
Your skin easily absorbs the natural ingredients, which are carried by traditional skin-friendly Japanese Magoroku (equine oil). Modern science now confirms that Dr. Ohhira‘s Magoroku oil contains essential fatty acids that are similar to human dermal oils. This gives it a high degree of absorbency to support natural dermal rejuvenation.
